The views are nice - the rest is well, almost laughably, awful. If you are a European and expect a TGV or ICE class express train, be in for a Slow and Dirty shock. The Amtrak Adirondack train from NYC to Montreal arrived 2 hours...More

Going north from New York to Montreal which side of the train is the river on?

The river is on the left, but Lake Champlain is on the right. I'd sit on the left because the train will pretty much empty at Albany.
